Fighting For Boat Accident Victims in Baltimore & Prince George's County

Maryland is well known for its many waterways. As such, boating and fishing are incredibly popular activities, attracting locals and tourists alike. As a result, the busy waterways are filled with many different drivers – from experienced captains to those who are less skilled or even impaired due to drinking. This, combined with the natural difficulties that come with boating, in addition to the fact that these boats are often high powered, is a recipe for potential injury.

Common Injuries in Boating Accidents

People suffer a variety of serious injuries when boats collide, primarily due to the speed and size of the watercrafts, combined with the fact that these accidents occur out on open water. Furthermore, passengers and drivers are unrestrained in boats, leading to significant movement when collisions happen. While there are supposed to be flotation devices on boats in case of emergency, many operators fail to take this precaution into account. As a result, wrongful death may occur in a boating accident, not only due to the injuries themselves but also due to drowning. 

Injuries and death can come about in any number of ways, including:

  • Capsizing
  • Drowning
  • Propeller injuries
  • Fire and explosion
  • Rough waters or wake
  • Impact with sandbars
  • Collisions with other boats
  • Slip and fall/man overboard
  • Collisions with docks or piers
  • Defective watercraft or equipment
  • Contact with submerged structures
  • Falls from heights (such as a second story on the boat)
  • Defective life jackets, floatation devices, or safety gear

At Miller Stern Lawyers, we handle accidents involving all types of boats, including commercial ships, speedboats, yachts, fishing boats, jet skis, and more. Though accidents can occur for a variety of reasons, one thing is true for all cases: These incidents usually result in high medical bills, costly property damage, and other economic hardships.
